Just Because ... by Josie Riviera

Here we are in the dog days of summer. The heat, humidity, and mosquitoes are here in full force.  
I hope you're enjoying summer with a vacation, or have had the opportunity to slow down and relax.

Did you know that August 27th is the national day for doing things ... just because? Joseph J. Goodwin created the day in the 1950s for his family.

What can we do ... just because ... to make someone else's day brighter? 
Here are some suggestions:

*Invite a friend for a chat and a treat ... just because!

*Pay for the order of a person in line at the store ... just because!

*Gift someone a card telling them how much you appreciate them ... just because!

*Smile and wave a friendly hello to everyone you meet ... just because!

What can you do to make someone's day better ... just because?  Please leave your comments below:
